Heh, thanks :) It's not _that_ difficult from perl or mercurial, so I
had good starting point.

I changed that in the patch I just sent.

Hmmm, looking at the python documentation, I should be using

================= RawConfigParser.getboolean(section, option) ==================
    A convenience method which coerces the option in the specified section to a
Boolean value. Note that the accepted values for the option are "1", "yes",
"true", and "on", which cause this method to return True, and "0", "no",
"false", and "off", which cause it to return False. These string values are
checked in a case-insensitive manner. Any other value will cause it to raise

I'll chage that.
